Entropia Universe Launch Space

June 21, 2011

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, June 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –

MindArk, creators of the fast growing MMORPG/Virtual 3D environment
Entropia Universe, today announces the introduction of Entropia Space. This
new addition is unique in the Game market as most Space games only provide
space and spaceship environments. Entropia Universe, which was launched in
2003, started differently, with thousands of avatars interacting on the
planets of the Universe. The enormous and diverse land areas of the various
worlds will now be surrounded by a complete Space experience. Avatars will
be able to walk around on the ships, land on planets and asteroids, and then
disembark from their ships to explore strange, new worlds and trade with the
inhabitants they meet.

The launch of Entropia Space, on June 21, includes new spacecrafts, new
environments, space battles and new opportunities for entrepreneurs to put
their skills and creativity to the test to earn money in the Real Cash
Economy of Entropia Universe. New features will be implemented, as well. A
new karma system will provide ranks and titles for the ships with a clear
distinction between good and evil. Participants’ choices will lead them
toward one or the other; towards becoming a feared space pirate or towards
being a steadfast vigilante.

“What we are doing is truly unique. The vision has always been to build
a virtual universe which mimics the real universe and then extends it even
further. Entropia Universe has seen great strides in development over the
past several years, creating a peerless experience for participants,” says
Jan Welter Timkrans, founder and CEO of MindArk. “We have upgraded the
graphics, introduced an advanced voice system created in partnership with
Ericsson, released several new planets from 3rd party developers partnered
in our “Planet Partner” program and now we are introducing Entropia Space -
all connected with one, universal, Real Cash Economy. After years of hard
work we are finally reaching this major milestone in bringing our vision to
life. It is a great feeling!”

Entropia Space is set to provide a whole new level of diversity, game
play, opportunity and fun to participants, both present and future. With
four planets in the Entropia Universe and more on tap this year, MindArk is
looking forward to further expansion and added dynamics of the universe.
